Swiftech Drive X3 H360 Coolant Advice

I just received my Swiftech H360 AIO and I'm getting ready to fit it. I am slightly concerned that some reviewers and customers think the Mayhem Nanofluid Pastel White might start leaving buildup on parts of the loop. The main reason I chose this product was that Swiftech asserted that this device would not require maintenance for around 3 years, so seeing this is quite concerning. but if the coolant is going to gunk up the components I guess I'd have to do that maintenance a lot sooner, correct?

This leads me to wonder if there is a necessity to change the coolant out for a clear coolant before installing it. I'd much rather just fit the cooler as is, but I'd rather resolve this now, before installation, rather than having to remove it from the PC in a year or whatever to clean the components.

So, would you expect this coolant to create buildup in this AIO? I'd particularly love the opinions of people who've used Mayhem's Pastel Nanofluid over long periods, or used one of these Swiftech AIOs.

Thanks in advance
